Scoot, Tigerair to merge under one brand come July 25
Singapore, June 16, 2017
The integration of Scoot and Tigerair under a common brand and operating licence is expected to be complete by July 25.
Thereon, the Scoot website, www.flyscoot.com, will be the sole booking platform for all flights currently operated by Scoot and Tigerair, while the Scoot call centre will service bookings from both airlines at (65) 3157 6434.
Both airlines' check-in counters will also reflect a single Scoot brand while the flight designator code for Scoot flights will be changed from the current TZ to TR, the code currently used for Tigerair flights.
The integrated Scoot fleet will consist of Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Airbus A320-family aircraft. For now, destinations such as Bangkok, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Taipei will continue to be operated on both B787 and A320 aircraft.
These latest developments will wrap up the integration efforts of Scoot and Tigerair since May 2016, when they were brought under a common holding company, Budget Aviation Holdings.
